Random Trivia For This Title:

  • This short film was the first in the [Baby Burlesk] one-reel comedy series.
  • Shirley Temple said her first line of dialogue in this film. The line, "Oui, mon cher," was a French phrase she did not understand.
  • Shirley Temple's parents, [?] George Temple and [?] Gertrude Temple, took their daughter to see this movie at a local theater; Gertrude later recalled, "The picture lasted ten minutes. Shirley merely flitted across the screen a few times and said only two lines. But my head swam and the goose flesh popped out on my arms. I think I cried a little. George squeezed my hand. We were proud. It was our little girl doing something wonderful, like saying her first words, and we were happy."
